About This Plugin - Read Before Installing

  • :!: The latest version of this plugin (main download link above) requires PATCH1, PATCH2, PATCH3 below to work properly.
  • The update supplied by Ahmet Sacan below has been installed and tested to work well under Version 2012-10-13 “Adora Belle“ when combined with PATCH1 & PATCH2 below. I have updated the plugin info and main download link to point to this new version and have contacted the original author. — Sherri 2013/02/25 19:02
    • PATCH1 below fixes issues with some editor buttons not working and some buttons missing.
    • PATCH2 below fixes issues with the editor's header buttons not working.
  • I have used this plugin for years. I did not find a similar plugin that I like as much as this one. However it does needs some maintenance. I managed to get this working with HRUN using the patches below, as well as updating lib/plugins/crypt/action.php based on the jQueryfaq

PATCH1: Resolving conflict with Linkwizard JS code (Editor Toolbar Issues)

This solution makes “almost” everything work: The linkwizard is checking the textearea's form's pageid, but fails to do so, because moving the textarea out of the form is a critical part of the crypt's functionality. You need to change 2 lines in linkwiz.js to enable its to access the form's pageid:

PATCH2: Resolving problems with empty pages and toolbar header buttons

The header buttons in the editor toolbar are not working. Reported by Termiter. This patch resolves the issue.

PATCH3: Resolving addInitEvent is not defined JS error.

In action.php change this line:

$event->data['script'][]=array('type'=>'text/javascript','charset'=>'utf-8','_data'=>'','_data'=>"addInitEvent(function() { return(decryptEditSetup()); });");

to this:

$event->data['script'][]=array('type'=>'text/javascript','charset'=>'utf-8','_data'=>'','_data'=>"jQuery(function(){ return(decryptEditSetup()); });");

Note that I am going to fork this plugin and release a clean working one.

Comments & Discussion

IMHO it's not a really good idea to using “prompt” for insert the pass-phrase, cause anybody can see what you type. anyway if I can read the passphrase, it's not useful to type it twice, or?

winky 2010/02/26

any fix to make a password prompt?

peufel 2011/10/06

Not compatible with the version 2013/03/06

biowan 2013/04/29

I don't know if I'm alone in this case, but it's really doesn't work with the version in 2013-05-10. I patched and empty cache folder, no way.

biowan 2013/05/27

I also had problems with the latest version of Dokuwiki 2013-05-10. The <SECRET> tag does not work and there is no “DecryptSecret” button when editing pages. I think there is a typo on the version of Dokuwiki for which PATCH1 and PATCH2 should be used: instead of 2013-10-13, it should be 2012-10-13, right ?

renatocan 2013/08/09

Is there A better way to build this type of plugin so it doesn't break every time DokuWiki gets an upgrade?

Whats the best model for encrypting text client side?

J 2013/October/8th

Somewhere, I'm happy that I'm not alone. I'm really frustate that there is no solution and I don't know how this plugin works. No way for me to debug it and it's really complex to understand what the javascript does. So I must migration to another plugin and I must change them 1 by 1 manually.
